Marjorie Swegle was born in Walla Walla on June 12, 1921, and died June 17, 2018.
She had four children: Blake Swegle, Marcus Swegle, Janine Swegle, and Nannette Swegle. Of which, her daughter Nannette Parker (Swegle) is still alive today, and in eastern Oregon, while the others have gone home to be with the Lord. She also has six grandchildren, and multiple great-grandchildren and great, great, grandchildren whom survive her as well.
Marjorie Swegle was a long-time resident of White Salmon.
She settled in the area in 1952, after her husband Bruce Swegle, finished his tour of duty during the Korean War and World War II as a Naval Service Captain.
Until her death, she lived in the same home that she, her husband, and children made home when they settled in White Salmon.
Margie was an avid cook and loved the wildlife that often visited her yard. She was a strong and stoic woman, with a love for God, who often was known to sing hymns while she did her dishes, or went about her housework.
Her family was her life, and they brought her much joy. She also appreciated the dedicated staff that had cared for her over the past several years, as do the family of Mrs. Swegle.
On Friday, June 29, 2018, there will be a small graveside funeral/memorial in Walla Walla at Mountain View Cemetery, starting between 12:30 and 1 p.m., followed by a little lunch gathering at a local eatery (to be discussed at the conclusion of the graveside funeral/-memorial). Please keep the family in your thoughts at this time.
